HR 6100 - both A & C stations running simultaneously

I'm using a Hardie HR 6100, with three stations on A and one station (drips) on C. When the C program is activated, however, the first station that is assigned to A also comes on. The programming seems correct (stations 1, 2, and 3 are only scheduled on A, only section 4 is scheduled on C). Thanks in advance for any advice!

Try this

If you're positive the programming is correct try this. When the C program comes on and you have two valves running at the same time, disconnect the wire from the station number 1 terminal and see if the valve shuts off. If it shuts off then the controller is telling it to run and the controller is the problem. If it stays on you have a wiring issue. If you have a wiring issue I would suspect that the dripline would come on when station number 1 on the A program starts. If you determine it's the controller you could try abandoning the number 1 terminal incorporating the number 5 terminal.
